One of best Polish comedies
23 November 2008 | by galaxia6See all my reviews

This is definitely a classic you won't see on TCM !! The tells a story of a two Polish families that were rivaling with each other !! For Ages This time the old dated eastern peasant families must adobt to a new Socialist style of living however can the Soviet Imposed regime handle old eastern peasant and change the peasants into communistic farmers ! OR will the Socialist way of thinking need to adapt to those peasant ! Knowing the eccentricity of such People the second option seems more reliable ! Can the Communist apartship stop the fighting between Kargul and Pawlak or will they be forced to keep on eye on not quite favoubor image of Polish peasantry !

Tons of fun I suggest watching it to all people ! giving the time the movie was made it was a very brave FILM !!
